California Attorney General Displays Anti-American Graffiti

California Attorney General Bill Lockyer, has crossed the line. Lockyer along with the California Arts Council has sponsored an anti-American, anti-military, anti-Christian and anti-Semitic "art" exhibit on display in the California Department of Justice building. By the way, the exhibit was paid for by the tax paying citizens of California.

Among the "art" displayed is a picture depicting the US Capitol Building being blown up with an image of a hooded Abu Graib prisoner, arms outstretched in a Christ-like pose complete with a red halo around his head. Another is an image of the continental United States painted with American Flag stars and stripes being flushed down a toilet.

A press release by MoveAmericaForward.org states:
(SACRAMENTO) – California’s top law enforcement officer, Attorney General Bill Lockyer, has set off a firestorm by showcasing anti-American, anti-military, anti-Christian and anti-Semitic artwork in the California Department of Justice building.

“A Creative Merger: Lawyers & Artists” exhibit features a number of offensive, anti-American exhibits including a U.S. flag in the shape of the continental United States being flushed down a toilet. Pictures from the exhibit can be found at the website for Move America Forward (website: www.MoveAmericaForward.org), a pro-troop, non-profit organization that is organizing a counter-exhibit showcasing patriotic artwork.

The exhibit is sponsored by a taxpayer funded entity (the California Arts Council) and California’s top law enforcement officer, Attorney General Bill Lockyer. Lockyer is listed as an official sponsor of the event according to a press release issued on July 12, 2005 by the California Arts Council (a taxpayer-funded entity).

The news release quotes Lockyer as saying:

“It is an honor to co-host this powerful exhibit and display the talent of our legal community,” Lockyer said. “Creative expression stimulates freedom of thought, appreciation for diversity and opens new windows onto the world in which we live. The collected works of these fine artists – and lawyers – achieve these worthwhile objectives with style and beauty.”

A copy of the press release citing Lockyer’s sponsorship of the exhibit along with the sponsorship of the taxpayer-funded Californa Arts Council is available at the Move America Forward website (www.MoveAmericaForward.org).
